Hepatitis B is an acute infection which, once you have had, you have natural immunity to ever having it again. Most people recover from Hepatitis B after a few weeks or months and medical treatment, although some people do have a stronger reaction and take a long time to recover which can include staying in hospital – this is called chronic Hepatitis B and affects around 5% of those people with Hepatitis B.
